Ann Hard­ing Cheshire Home Break­fast run

Join us for a a bacon and egg roll at Ann Hard­ing Cheshire Home from 08:30

Address: 40 4th Road, Rand­burg, Gauteng


Dave will give a short talk, we will meet some of the res­i­dents of Cheshire Home, and then we offi­cially leave on our 2 week 6 500km adven­ture through the beau­ti­ful South Africa.

Come bear­ing gifts!

Cheshire Homes need your time, care and skills as much (if not more) than dona­tions. Please see where you can volunteer.

If you pre­fer to donate, here are some beau­ti­ful, prac­ti­cal options:

From Jackie Kyle (Ann Hard­ing Cheshire Homes):

In terms of gifts, we do need art mate­ri­als (see below list), and we are also des­per­ately in need of crock­ery for our kitchens – prob­a­bly plain white cater­ing crock­ery would be the best option. We just need din­ner plates, cereal bowls, mugs, side plates and pos­si­bly cups and saucers. We have 40 Res­i­dents, but we wouldn’t expect every­thing in one go, and would be grate­ful for what­ever they would be able to donate. Not sure how that would work on the bikes though .

The list for art mate­ri­als is as fol­lows :

Tile cut­ters

Mosaic tiles

Wood glue

Wood cut outs (to paint or mosaic)


Plas­ter of paris moulds

Tins to dec­o­rate
